Project Description

Autumn School: Teachers Against Disinformation

Main objective of the project is to focus on improving the skills and knowledge of teachers and professors at high schools around Slovak republic in how to deal with new threats stemming from disinformation, propaganda and fake news. The acquired knowledge can be incorporated into the learning process to improve the capabilities of critical thinking of students and though help stop spreading disinformation and radicalisation in the society.

In 10th – 12th November 2017, teachers from high-schools will gather in Bratislava to attend lectures and workshops led by leading Slovak experts on the issues.

After autumn school, Slovak Security Policy Institute will also publish book with presented lectures, which will be distributed electronically and via post to Slovak high schools.
